    January 2020

    This month has felt very long, which is probably why I’ve been able to write this post on the 28th. Already settled back into the routine of Crochet & Residential Care Home Classes, in the latter we were making pictures to fit into fridge magnet photo frames. In between classes I’ve been busy crocheting and even a little gardening.

    July & August 2019

    Despite this being a double month, there’s been very little crafting going on. Life got in the way with summer holidays and a house move.

    My month has been bookend by work on 2 pompom rugs for my daughter, but I have managed to squeeze in a couple of other projects as well as a few classes.

    Introduction to Amigurumi

    Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting stuffed toys. There are no restrictions in size or set style despite the usual expectation that they will be small. The term is an merging of the words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.

    Amigurumi Baymax

    My New Year blog post catch up continues. I’m now working through all the part written posts.  I started this last August, it’s only been on hold because I hadn’t embroidered the eyes. That’s been rectified today so I can get it marked off. Sometimes I volunteer to do things without really knowing if I can.  “Sure I can make a Baymax” being a case in point.

    Amigurumi Sloth

    I don’t know about other crafters but I find I don’t often have to go looking for projects, I’m lucky enough to have friends who show me ones they think I might find interesting or quirky.

    Amigurumi Elephant 2

      One of the ladies who comes to the Wool Haven crochet classes is interested in amigurumi and brought a pattern she purchased from Etsy to show me. Of course I wanted a shot at it.
